Playcelets!

Task:

Create application that gives ability to track their presence within some area.

Description

Let's imagine you have kids. And you want to know what they are doing while they play outside. Similar situation can be noticed at school or kindergarten - you as a parent or a teacher or anyone who is responsible for kids safety, want to know if they are all located within specific territory and be warned if they go outside.

This was the main idea that we received from one of our customers.

They already had prototype of bracelet which had programmable iBeacon chip on board ([Play] with bra[celets]).

iBeacons is a technology offered by Apple for indoor and short-range navigation when GPS doesn't work.

The plan was that custom bracelets with additional indicators on board could be monitored by any iPhone after simple configuration. And led indicators could be used to receive some signals from parent phone like "Alert, please go home!"

For this project we've built the prototype that consists from:

  • mobile application that monitors beacons
  • Web application that was responsible for data aggregation, information exchanges, stats, etc.
  • What were the challenges?

  • Working with 3rd party developer from customer side. Actually, it was not a problem - just
  • very interesting experience of working on a hardware creation. Awesome!

  • Working with iBeacons. Native implementation from Apple has a set of limitations. We had to cope with it to make it work - Done!
  • This project is one of our most favourite ones, as it gives us challenging tasks and ability to make people's lives better and less stressful.
